When I download entire shows onto my IPOD they get downloaded in alphabetical order. When the shows get transferred onto the site they are in order of the show's set list, but when I download them onto my IPOD they go in ABC order not set list what im I doing wrong ? but that's just the ipod. If I put it on a CD its fine Thank you

Make sure that the mp3 tracks are tagged with track numbers. Sometimes after I download them they're not coded with track numbers and/or titles so I manually do that. Then when I see them in my iPod, they are in the correct order. Apparently iPods read track numbers first to put the tracks in order. If that's blank perhaps it defaults to alphabetical order.

Hope that helps.

Right click on any song, click "Get Info" and choose the Info tab. Then you can edit the metadata however you like. Inserting track numbers will solve the problem, and it's not as much trouble as it sounds. You can advance through all the songs in a show in succession rapidly before saving everything you've added.

At the top of iTunes, you can organize the songs by "name", "time", "artist", "album", etc. Click on "album" and see if that helps.

Strange. Go to settings on the main menu, then reset settings and try another download and sync.

This problem is usually the result of the songs being organized by "name".
